Students Learn About Fish & Ecosystems Via Simulation
The first title in the Nature Collector series, Freshwater Fish encourages problem-solving skills and planning strategies, research and deductive reasoning through underwater exploration. Players build 30 aquarium exhibits in a "virtual museum," drawing from more than 100 actual species of exotic fish and a multitude of water flora gathered from around the world.
